EQUIPMENT, SERVICES AND TECHNOLOGY:

Helping deliver leading edge equipment, services and technology, the Gleason Initiative provides ALS patients with purpose and the ability to communicate, interact, and be valuable.
Technology and equipment have advanced over the past decade but these services can be taken even further. With these advanced tools, we feel that ALS patients will choose to live extraordinary lives.
The Gleason initiative works with the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) and creative companies like Cereproc and DynaVox to develop voice creation and hands-free software and technology.

PUBLIC AWARENESS:

Steve has always pursued travel and adventure. To raise public awareness towards ALS The Gleason Initiative helps provide, coordinate and document extraordinary lifetime adventures for ALS patients.
By documenting these lifetime adventures, The Gleason Initiative helps ALS patients inspire others and tell their story to the world.

BRINGING THINGS TOGETHER:

Using a “pay it forward” concept, The Gleason Initiative requires that patients who participate in our ‘extraordinary lifetime adventures’ help coordinate & administer future events for other patients. During the process they utilize technology and equipment we helped develop so they can establish the tools and skills necessary for a productive, valuable and purposeful life.
